Incorporating the students in Educator Appreciation Week!

Appreciation is a learned skill and with 📣Educator Appreciation Week📣 just around the corner, our PTA want to make sure we include the STUDENTS!

Each day next week will have a 🌟FREE🌟student-based SIMPLE and EASY activity!

But wait, don’t worry!

These will ALL be done at school and require NO at home extra work 😉. (I have 2 kids in the BYA right now, so I get how busy after school life is!)

Volunteers will help remind students as they walk in each day what the activity is AND bright posters will be hung around the school to remind them!

This flyer will be distributed the following ways:

1️⃣ via email blast from the schools

2️⃣ sent home in backpacks this week to post on your fridge or the bottom of your school paperwork pile, if you’re like me 🤪

3️⃣ posted each day on our media sites

4️⃣ on our events page where each day has an event so if you mark “interested” or “going” FB will send you a reminder! Yay, technology!

PLEASE share this post so the word gets out! Thank you for spreading the word!

Educator Appreciation Week School Supply Donation Sign up!

If you are able, please consider donating one (or more!) of the items listed on the sign up genius image below: Sign Up!

This year we are doing this a bit differently. First, we are asking for less of a variety of supplies. Second, we are asking for specific items. We include links to Amazon to guide you when applicable. Why are we doing this? To ensure all staff are able to receive the same donations of each item so that no one misses out!

The Barrington PTA donates $108.00 to purchase, in bulk, over 100 hand sanitizer pump’s. Every staff member will get a bottle! We need help to get the remaining items in the list.

Items can be delivered to either school between now and May 7th!!! Donation boxes will be put up in the main entrances.

Thank you in advance, Barrington Families!

Save those Easter clothes!


In anticipation of our upcoming Family Dance in May, we will be holding a “dress clothes swap” at BES! (This includes ECLC Families but BES has more space for this type of thing…)

The goal of this swap is to ensure that all families can attend the dance and look and FEEL fabulous without having to spend more and more 💰!

The dance is an event for our school community and ALL families should get to attend without extra costs often associated with semi-formal events! You and your kiddos will get to come in and pick out a “new to you” outfit FREE of charge.

Additional information will be distributed via flyer and email blast in a few weeks like how to get us the clothes and other details like when the swap will be held.

So, if you can, kindly hold on to any dressy clothes for kids that you have!

Can’t wait to 💃🏻 the night away with you!

Happy Administrative Professionals Day!
